I loved everhythign about it. Interesting to read it with my daughter who knows nothing of the towers… I had remembered it from yoru blog. I think I need a copy on our own bookshelf!

Our eldest is 5 and we haven’t explained the whole tragedy to him yet. Maybe this book would be a good way to do it. Thanks.

Adrian was truly inspired by it. He worked really hard on creating the towers with a tightrope in between. It was one of his favorite projects / books and we still have the display in his room.

In fact, we read the Big Kids version while I was in labor with my second child. It is so inspiring to see how he was able to make his dreams come true. All it takes is some planning and a willingness to step into the unknown.

Watch out!

I thought it was a perfect souvenir to bring home for my little guy…so I did. It’s a fabulous book!

I picked this book up a couple years ago at the library and loved it. Great illustrations.

Wouldn’t watch it with my kids necessarily, but would be great as a stay-at-home date night movie with your husby.

The only difficult part, the explanation that goes along with it every time we read it. Man on a Wire was pretty fascinating too.

You might check it out. (I might remember some post tightrope walking partying that you might not want your kids to see, so I’d preview it first.) Still really interesting and well made.

It, too, is about a tightrope walker in NYC. I’ll be sure to check out this kids version – sounds (and looks) fantastic!
